Child labour and youth enterprise

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi all

Child Labour considerations in Youth Enterprise are essential because it will guide youth entrepreneurs from offending the law on child labour where it exists. On the child blacksmith, I have in mind two scenarios, The first is that the child may never be able to break out of the cycle of poverty, with no education and skills, he may continue in that trade throughout his youthful years, raise a family and it could even transcend to generational poverty, because he may end up raising his kids with no education, and the kids are likely to become child blacksmiths as well.

On the other hand the child may abandon the trade as a youth and because he lacks education and a means of livelihood, he may engage in a number of vices in a bid to survive, that may affect the socio-economic development of his country e.g armed group violence, militancy etc…Well I sincerely hope the child gets rescued.
